The Preston High School agriculture department is completing work on a second greenhouse near the Bill Craner Agriculture Building and it should be operational for students and instructors on Oct. 1.

Several months ago the ag department received a grant from Monsanto Corporation to help with expenses of building the second greenhouse. The frame of the structure was completed this spring. Students are installing translucent, insulated, polycarb panels over the “spine” this week.

Brance Cash, a senior, (r) uses a drill to secure supports for a new greenhouse adjacent to the Craner Ag Building. He is being helped by Kacey Hebdon, a junior, (l) and senior Bryce Nielson. The new facility should be finished by Oct. 1 and ready for use by students.

“The new facility will give us a bunch more room for students to work in. We’re not necessarily going to grow more plants in the greenhouse. But it will allow us to grow our program,” said Josh Evans, an ag science teacher who started the program.
